Web Design

Every website I create is completely custom built from the ground up, so you can be sure your website will be unique and tailored to your specific needs.

What I can do for you

A successful website should grab the user’s attention, draw them in, and keep them engaged. The experience should leave a lasting impression that keeps them coming back.

  • Visual Design

    I believe it’s important to have a website that attracts and engages visitors. By paying attention to detail and usability, I create attractive websites that deliver a satisfying user experience.

  • Front-End Development

    I use valid, semantic code to ensure your website will be accessible to both visitors and search engines. Web standards also allow your site to update easily and age gracefully.

  • CMS Integration

    Designing a great looking site is only half the fun. I integrate Content Management Systems, like WordPress, that adapt to your needs and give you complete control over the content on your site.

The Process

A successful project almost always starts with a plan. Following an established process will save time, keeping you from taking two steps forward and one step back.

  • Project Goals & Planning

    The first phase in the process involves researching, gathering information and assembling project goals. I meet with you to determine what functionalities the site should have, as well as a general design direction. I then create a site map to establish the structure of the site. I work with you to set project timelines and goals to ensure we stay on track and on budget.

  • Design Concepts

    The design phase is focused on creating a design concept that illustrates the goals we’ve outlined, but is also visually pleasing and engaging.

  • Website Construction

    Once the design concept has been approved, the development phase begins. I install the CMS, develop the HTML/CSS, construct the site structure and add approved content. I use a method called Progressive Enhancement: your website is developed to work and look decent in older, base-level browsers, but will have non-essential, more advanced CSS and Javascript features in current and future browsers.

  • Testing

    Before launching the site, I test for cross-browser compatibility and usability in all major browsers. This ensures that no matter what browser is being used, the experience will be a satisfying one.

  • Updates, Support & Maintenance

    Whether you choose to use a CMS or not, you might still prefer that someone else handle the updates. Or maybe you’ve come across an issue that needs fixing or updating. Don’t worry – I’m here to help! I can provide back-end training and address any issues that arise.

Print Design

From design concept to final product, I can handle all your print project needs. I’ll create a professional design solution that works for you. I can also assist with choosing a printer and getting the project printed for you, or deliver the print-ready files straight to you.

What I can do for you

Design communicates what you want to say through visual elements and thoughtful layout. Every part tells a story and helps deliver your message in an effective, visually intriguing way.
